Welcome to Catesbi
Catesbi CIC is making a difference to children with autism, related conditions and children from deprived backgrounds.
Catesbi CIC was founded in 2017 to help children who experience behavioural problems.
We combine the science of behaviour with empathy to ensure that each child receives the behaviour support they need.
We provide behaviour assessments, interventions and training for professionals and families in Dundee and Tayside.
We don’t require a formal diagnosis: for us, it is behaviour which is the key.

Our Annual Report
“Children are at the centre of everything we do. Count us in if you know a child who could do with positive behaviour support.”
Suzie Repova trained as a Social Worker, achieving a BA in Social Work, an MSEd in Social Education, and postgraduate qualifications in Autism and Learning at Aberdeen University before obtaining certificate as a Registered Behaviour Technician at the University of Belfast.
She has worked with children on the autistic spectrum since 2007, has sat as the chair of a Children’s Panel, and has worked as a foster carer for a child with autism – an experience which she says changed her life. After experiencing just how badly children with support needs can be let down, she resolved to do everything she could to make sure that no more children in Scotland are left behind.
Originally from Slovakia, Suzie lives in Newport, Fife, with her husband, two young children and an over-enthusiastic Labrador. Her hobbies are pole dancing and cakes.
Suzie is available to talk about your support needs.
